Codebreaker

Spotify Radio

John Moe Dec 9, 2011

Grumpy morning around Pandora headquarters, I’d wager, as they wake to news that Spotify is coming to get them. Spotify has announced the launch of Spotify Radio, which seems custom made to compete with internet radio generator thingy Pandora. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek made the announcement in Paris this morning at the Le Web conference, which almost seems like a parody name of what a French web conference would be named. Zut alors! Je suis on Le Web!

One of the big features of Spotify Radio is unlimited skips. So you can just keep buzzing past songs that you don’t like. Users can also flag songs they like on Spotify Radio to their Spotify playlists.
